For those of you who have “bad” feet, you’ll understand why I consider my flip flops - also known as my FF’s - to be a blessing in my life. I have weird feet with long toes and very big and painful bunions. When I was growing up in south Florida, it was the order of the day to wear Capezio’s...not the ballet shoe ones, but the leather ones with the super dooper pointed toes that cut across and put lots of pressure on the big toe joints. NOT GOOD, and as an adult I am paying the price for wanting to follow the flow and “be in style." Putting my toes into regular flats is pure agony, but there are those cold months that give me no choice but to get a grip, put them on, and just go on with life. Never do I wear even the lowest high heels....I cannot stand the discomfort. I either go barefooted in the house or put on the flip flops, and once spring arrives I breathe a sigh of relief, put the leather away, and bring out my collection of FF’s. The pain goes away...oh, happy day! They are relatively cheap and come in all sorts of neat prints and bright solids which makes it fun. Oh, my goodness....the old feet love the FF’s just as I do. They are absolutely the best! This choice is indisputable in my book....my funky flip flops have to be my Blessing #17.
